Hello Ladies and Gentlemen

Next week I will be acquiring a Pentax K-70 from B&H. I haven't owned a camera in a number of years and I am itching like a kid the week before Christmas. Many moons ago I owned a Sony DSC 707 and a Meade DSI astronomy dedicated CCD camera. The BIG plan is to use the K-70 for general photo stuff and for astro applications, including but not limited to: tripod mounted very wide field pics and prime focus and variable focus pics using the Pentax K SLR / DSLR Deluxe Astrophotography Kit on my beautiful Celestron 8 inch SCT. I've been browsing the wonderful PentaxForums for a few days and I want to express my appreciation to all of you for sharing your vast knowledge, opinions, and expertise. This place is a treasure chest, so I offer a tip of the hat to the gents, and a deep bow to the ladies - thanks!

You'll have fun digging through the astrophotography group photos. There are some really amazing efforts there.
